Oct 3: Warm Shredded Lamb Salad with Pomegranate, Dolmas with Caramelized Onion Hummus and a Lettuce, Tomato, Feta and Preserved Lemon Salad

Lunch

We decided to make Netherlands style Pannenkoek, which largely means cooking your “topping” in the pan before layering on the Pancake Mix. We chose a high Protein Pancake Mix. We topped with Fried Eggs, which is not traditional.

  • Pancake Mix was $2.99 and we shared half, or 75c per serve
  • Uncured Bacon was $5.99 for 10 slices, and we had two each, or $1.20 per serve
  • Eggs average 72c per serve.

We know to make the mix a little looser next time, and the slight sweetness of the Pancake mix wasn’t the perfect match, but it was a good first attempt that we will improve on, for $2.67 per serve.

Dinner

As we were able to get a Pomegranate we revisited the Shredded Lamb Salad, squeezed in the Pomegranate Juice, topped with the Arils, and served with Dolmas, Caramelized Onion Hummus and a Salad of Lettuce, semi-dried Tomatoes, Feta and Preserved Lemon.

  • The butterflied Leg of Lamb from Aldi was $23.28 and we will get eight serves, or $2.91 per serve
  • Mint and Preserved Lemon were free
  • Add 30c for Onion and seasoning
  • We used semi-dried Cherry Tomatoes for 30c per serve
  • The Mixed Greens were $1.49 and we used half, or 38c each
  • The Feta adds 48c per serve
  • Add 15c for Dressing ingredients
  • Dolmas from Whole Foods were $3.41 (on special) or $1.13 per serve
  • Add 46c for Hummus.

Having experimented with alternatives, our consensus is that a fresh Pomegranate is essential for this dish. If you don’t have one, don’t do the Salad! An excellent meal for $6.41 per serve.
